faith and put it into great realities and an uproar of victory to encourage
all the people to accelerate a march to a paradise.

Love of country and nation guarantees country's prosperity
 ††† Pyongyang, December 2 (KCNA) -- Love of the country and the nation is a
guarantee for the prosperity and development of the country, says Rodong
Sinmun today in a signed article. The article goes on:
††† National self-respect is not simple love for the nation but patriotic
devotion to the defence of the sovereignty and dignity of the country and
the nation and to the prosperity of the country.
††† Those who have no love of the country and the nation cannot devote
themselves to the country and the people.
††† No matter how the situation and circumstances may change the people
strong in national identity and strong in love for the nation do not abandon
the spirit, tradition, customs and way of life peculiar to the nation but
struggle to defend and develop them.
††† When all the people deeply understand the history and the superiority of
tradition of their nation, they have high national pride and self-respect
and come out in the sacred struggle for the country and the people.
††† National self-respect should be fully displayed in the struggle against
the class enemies and imperialist aggressors.
††† The dignity and honor of the nation are unthinkable when the dignity of
the nation is trampled down and the sovereignty of the country ruthlessly
violated by foreign forces.
††† The imperialists are now talking about "whole human view on value" and
working hard to dissolve the independent spirit of a nation in it in a bid
to taint people with corrupt capitalist culture and way of life, paralyze
the love for the nation and class consciousness and achieve their
dominationist purpose.
††† That is why all the countries of the world value the superiority and
tradition of their nations and educate the people in them.
††† The Korean people have the national pride and self-confidence of having
President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il and living under the
advantageous socialist system. they will wage a dynamic struggle to build a
powerful nation in this land, loudly boasting of this honor and happiness.

Army-centered politics praised
 ††† Pyongyang, December 2 (KCNA) -- The socialist people's rally of
Democratic Congo held a lecture meeting on Nov. 23 on the occasion of the
10th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il's election as supreme commander of
the Korean People's Army and the 84th birth anniversary of the great
communist revolutionary fighter Kim Jong Suk. The general secretary of the
rally gave a lecture on the subject of "respected comrade Kim Jong Il's
great army-centered leadership" and "revolutionary career of great Kim Jong
Suk." 
††† Meanwhile, the Monima socialist organization of Madagascar gave a
lecture on Nov. 24 on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Kim Jong Il's
election as supreme commander of the KPA.
††† The general secretary of the organization said in his lecture that the
most correct political mode to defend and glorify socialism is the
army-based politics set forth by Kim Jong Il.

Japan hit for suppression of Chongryon
 ††† Pyongyang, December 2 (KCNA) -- The central committee of the General
Federation of Trade Unions of Korea yesterday issued a statement denouncing
the Japanese authorities for their unprecedented fascist suppression of the
General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon). The Japanese
authorities' fascist suppression of Chongryon is the most shameless
political crackdown designed to stifle Chongryon, a dignified overseas
citizens organization of the DPRK and an organization that protects the
rights and interests of Koreans in Japan, and, at the same time, is a
serious encroachment upon the dignity and sovereignty of the DPRK, the
statement says, and goes on:
††† The Japanese reactionaries, far from making an apology and compensation
for the criminal aggression from which the Korean people have suffered all
sorts of misfortunes and pain for more than one century, launched a
wholesale suppression of Chongryon as part of the frantic anti-DPRK and
anti-Chongryon campaign. That is an anachronistic folly that cannot be
justified in any case.
††† They should face up to the trend of the times, put an immediate halt to
the fascist suppression of Chongryon, unconditionally and immediately
release the arrested Chongryon officials and Koreans in Japan and make a
thoroughgoing apology.
††† If they follow up the suppression of Chongryon while persistently
pursuing the hostile policy towards the DPRK in defiance upon the repeated
warnings of the workers and other people of the DPRK, they will be held
responsible entirely for all the ensuing consequences and have to pay a high
price. 
††† We express conviction that all the workers and personages around the
world who advocate justice and truth will express full support to Chongryon
and Koreans in Japan in their just struggle against the unreasonable search
and political suppression on the part of the Japanese authorities.

Resignation of S. Korean information and communications minister demanded
 ††† Pyongyang, December 2 (KCNA) -- More than 70 civic and public
organizations in South Korea including the joint action against the
censorship of information and communications held a press conference in
Seoul on Nov. 27 and called for the resignation of the "minister of
information and communications," according to radio no. 1 from Seoul. The
organizations accused the information and communications ethical committee
of infringing upon the freedom of expression in internet by powerful means
including a criminal punishment.

declaracion de vocero de minrex
 ††† pyongyang, el primero de diciembre (atcc) -- el vocero del ministerio
de relaciones exteriores de la republica popular democratica de corea hizo
publica el 30 de noviembre una declaracion condenando a las autoridades
japonesas que lanzaron a policias a registrar por fuerza la direccion
central de la asociacion general de coreanos residentes en el japon
(chongryon) y sus direcciones locales. la declaracion senala:
††† las autoridades japonesas las registraron por fuerza vinculando
obstinadamente el "problema" relativo a la gestion empresarial del banco de
coreanos con la direccion central de la chongryon lo cual es una artimana
politica esgrimida a la misma organizacion de la chongryon.
††† la chongryon ha patentizado mas de una vez al gobierno japones que no ha
hecho cosas que contravienen a la ley del japon en la transaccion con la
sociedad de credito del banco de coreanos y que todas sus actividades son
las legitimas que no estan en conflicto con ella.
††† sin embargo, los reaccionarios japoneses hicieron particularmente grande
solo el problema del banco de coreanos, acusaron arbitrariamente sin ningun
motivo juridico la chongryon, prestigiosa organizacion de ciudadanos en el
ultramar de la rpdc e incluso registraron por fuerza su direccion central.
esto es un arrogante acto criminal, vil represion politica contra la
chongryon y los coreanos residentes en el japon y, un brutal atentado a la
soberania de la rpdc.
††† no toleraremos jamas tales actos despoticos que insultan y hostigan
gravemente a la rpdc y que exacerban la situacion regional ni estaremos con
los brazos cruzados ante sus maquinaciones que se expanden de modo
escalonado contra la rpdc.
††† las autoridades japonesas deben poner de inmediato fin a sus represiones
fascistas contra la chongryon, pedir disculpa por el respecto y poner
incondicionalmente en libertad a las personas arrestadas injustamente.
††† si ellas siguen sus actos hostiles pese a las repetidas advertencias de
la rpdc, deberan asumir la entera responsabilidad de las consecuencias que
emanen de ello.
